Praying for You *SFYTT*

When I was picking up my Mom's Mother's Day gift, I picked up a few sheets of "Lush" pattern paper by My Mind's Eye. I was going to use it for a different project, but it was beckoning me to use it for today's SFYTT. I paired it with Damask Designs; one of my favorite stamp sets. I wanted to keep it crisp, clean and simple. I have been working on another project for the last couple of days that is anything but simple! LOL!

I actually used this sketch for my Mom's Mother's Day card, but I didn't have a chance to photograph it before we left to visit. For her card, I used scraps from the wrapping paper that I wrapped her gift in. I had been hoarding the paper for years; it was a Toile pattern that I picked up at a specialty store and never wanted to use it because it was "too" nice. I thought "Who better to use it for than my Mom". I still have a few scraps left that I tucked away on my desk, so you may see it in a design in the near future.

The stamping and design is pretty straightforward. I did add a few rhinestone gems to the corners and on the two damask images. The focal piece and ribbon slide were die-cut using nestabilities and my cuttlebug. I also embossed the background using the swiss dot embossing folder.
I have a Papertrey Ink order coming on Monday with lots of fun goodies that I can't wait to play with. I purchased the 'Teacher's Apple" stamp set so that I can get some end of year projects done for school. We only have two weeks left so I better get busy!
Emma got her new glasses on Wednesday and she looks absolutely adorable! She was able to read much quicker with them on! I hope we can get to the bottom of all of this and get on a plan to help her!

Very elegant! I love the colors and how you rounded the corners on the right. This is a fabulous use of the sketch.

My oldest has been wearing glasses since he was 3 and now wears bifocals at the age of 7. I hope she adjusts well to them.
